According to an Israeli government official, this work "is not only saving millions of lives it is literally changing the way we live our lives."

The U.S. Department of Defense called it “nothing short of a miracle,” and “her effective model of improving the world will help propel us closer to a world without suicide.” Dr. Posner ’s work was noted in a recent keynote at the White House and during congressional hearings. Her scholarly work was included in the most important research in the history of the study of suicide. Named one of New York Magazine’s “Most Influential” people, she received the New York State Suicide Prevention Award; the most Distinguished Alumna of her graduate school over the past 50 years; and gave the invited presentation on tackling depression and suicide to the leaders of the EU.

Since I can remember, I sought to fight against inequality and prejudice. Sometimes these battles were popular, often highly unpopular. These days more than ever, the poor and the disenfranchised feel like outcasts. Bullying and scapegoating resonate more than ever in a world of social media gone crazy. We’re better than this, America is better than this. 9
